Even with the advancements in the field of endodontics, many people still stiffen up when they hear the words “root canal.” But when you seek out our root canal specialist, there is absolutely nothing for you to be anxious about. The process is done smoothly and comfortably, with very little and often no pain at all as part of the experience. And since it’s a procedure that saves your natural tooth from being removed, leading to complications like having to get a replacement for it, we at Rockland Endodontics are pleased to offer our root canal in Rockland County as a great solution for you.
The advantage of having our endodontist perform it and not your general dentist is that our office has completed over 20,000 successful root canal treatments. We have the expertise and experience to leave you fully confident in the results. And because we use state-of-the-art tools, such as virtually silent electric hand pieces that only vibrate minimally, our root canal in Rockland County is not only easy on you physically, but emotionally, too. After you have been sufficiently numbed with local anesthesia, your tooth will be drilled from the top to gain access to the base where the infection is. The injured pulp along with the nerve will be removed along with any debris. The area is completely cleaned and sealed using a material called gutta-percha, which is biocompatible. Thanks to our high level of skill, our root canal in Rockland County can often be done in just a single session. If a second visit is required, however, the tooth will be protected with a temporary crown.
With proper care, a tooth that has undergone root canal will be just as strong and durable as any of your other teeth. When you’re suffering with the pain of a tooth infection, call us and schedule an appointment. We’re prepared to help.
